1993 Pontiac Trans Sport Serpentine Belt


i think its to old to have sensors on the rear brakes, but if you look at the hubs on the axle side and see wires coming out then yes you have a sensor, the serpintine belt has a wheel that doesnt run anything ( like the altenator or water pump) you put a socket or wrench on the bolt of that wheel and u can relieve the tension that way and replace the belt. im in little chute and can stop by and show you if u need help

Need to know how to put a serpentine belt on a 1995 302 ford motor


Below the altenator is a tensioning pully, insert a 3/8" ratchet or breaker bar in the square hole on the tensioner and release the tension on the surpentine belt and remove the belt. Route the new surpentine belt in place up to the altenator and take the tension off the tensioner and put the belt over the altenator pully. Double check to make sure the belt is riding correctly on all the pullies before starting. Crank the engine over several times before starting to seat the belt. f78f558.jpg

I dont know about 1998 but on my 1994 yes, we had to. Just make sure you have a jack underneath it. The front end of the oilpan is sturdy enough as to take rocks and junk that u can put some blocks or a jack on it

Cant find drive belt tensioner bolt to loosen serpintine belt


The serpentine belt tensioner / pulley is on the front of the engine, and part of the belt 'routing'.

Its job is to put tension on the belt as it drives the other devices like the power steering pump, water pump, air conditioning compressor.

It is an aluminum casting that mounts with a single bolt to the engine. The pulley is attached to the arm.

There are a few ways to move / pry the arm inwards, thus releasing the tension on the belt for removing/installing: grab on the pulley bolt (15mm?) with a wrench, or some later models have an opening for a 3/8th socket wrench to attach to directly without a socket.

Altenator


Unplug the alternator remove ground to motor.
Remove serpentine belt.
remove 2 bolts which hold alternator.
replace reverse of removal.
4 out of 10 difficulty.
Only special tool you will need is a wrench long enough to pull back the tensioner.
See the radiator support for location of tensioner and serpentine routing.
While its off, i would suggest replacing the belt too.

How to change the serpentine belt on a lumina euro 3.1??


I found on my 92 lumina 3.1 the easiest way to change the belt is to have two people handy (you and a helper) push the belt tensioner (which is more in the middle of the belt system, its the only thing that has give when pressure is applied) down (which will loosen the belt) have your partner slip the belt off the altenator (which should be on the very top of the belt system on the passenger side) and just pay attention to the way the belt is routed as you remove it, put the new one on (routed correctly) push the tensioner again have your partner slip it back over the altenator....and you have a new belt on with no tools :)

just pay good attention to the routing of the belt, and i also think there is a black cover over the belt which needs to be removed before the old belt can be taken off (if you dont see it at first you will find it) it has 3 bolts i think and also a diagram of the routing....

TIP: the tensioner will take some muscle to move down, and yes the belt is running over it....
